This table shows the growth of professional organizations and indicates the relative standing of each of the States with respect to membership in both National and State associations. The total membership in the National Education Association was 4,982 on January 1, 1908; 170,053 on January 1, 1927; and 181,350 on January 1, 1928. This latter figure is 20.12 per cent of the 901,280 teachers in the United States and Territories.
The figures for State associations for January 1, 1908, show a membership in these associations of 65,993. The figures for January, 1927, are 613,728, and for January 1, 1928, are 650,368, which is 72.16 per cent of the 901,280 teachers in the United States and Territories.
In the United States in 1927, 19.07 per cent of the teachers of the country were enrolled in the National Education Association; the corresponding per cent for 1928 given at the head of column 6 is 20.12. During the same year the per cent of teachers enrolled in State associations increased from 68.84 to 72.16, the per cent given at the head of column 11. The preceding per cents are based upon estimates as to the number of teachers in each State in 1927 and 1928. These estimates are as accurate as available data permit. The figures of column 2 include teachers, principals, supervisors, and administrative officers. The figures for State associations are based on signed reports from the officers of those associations.

You can obtain the figures for your State as follows:
In Alabama there were 829,729 (column 2) children 5 to 17 years of age. The enrollment in public elementary schools was 538,984 (column 3); in private elementary schools, 13,461 (column 4); in public secondary schools, 51,511 (column 5); in private secondary schools, 7,062 (column 6); in public higher institutions, 4,509 (column 7); and in private higher institutions, 3,191 (column 8). A total of 595,004 (column 9) students were enrolled in all public schools (elementary, secondary, and higher institutions) and a total of 23,714 (column 10) students were enrolled in all private schools, making a grand total of 618,718 (column 11) students enrolled in all elementary, secondary, and higher institutions, both public and private.
The per cent relationship of enrollment in elementary and secondary schools (611,018—the sums of columns 3, 4, 5, and 6) to population 5 to 17 years of age in Alabama (829,728) was 73.64 per cent. This per cent gives Alabama the ratio of enrollment in elementary and secondary rank of 47 among the States of the Union in schools to population 5 to 17 years of age.

Mr. BLACK. Could you tell us the names of anybody who ever, before any of these associations you are in contact with, expressed themselves as being against this bill in any of these meetings leading up to resolutions for the bill?
Mr. MORGAN. There have been scores of discussions. It would be unnecessary to take the time of this committee to tell of those discussions. The proceedings of the National Education Association have been spread out in full. You heard Doctor Judd tell you he opposed the old measure.
Mr. BLACK. I mean on this particular bill, whether there was any kind of real opposition to the bill in the National Educational Association.
Mr. MORGAN. This bill was developed after a most elaborate discussion. Perhaps it would be worth while to recall here
Mr. Robsion. Mr. Black is trying to bring out if there was any opposition expressed.
Mr. BLACK. In this association.
Mr. MORGAN. There was very little opposition. In a vote that involved a thousand people you might have two or three or a half dozen scattering votes in the negative.
Mr. Black. Are there any of the education journals affiliated with the organizations you speak of that are opposed to this bill?
